Actor Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, has received media attention after making a contentious claim about the disparity in quality between Marvel and Star Wars. The actor continued by saying that, in contrast to how uniform the Star Wars franchise has been over its whole history, Marvel can accomplish wonders when it comes to incorporating distinctive tales and aesthetics into its franchises.
Naturally, this could lead to a fight and a heated rivalry between the two sizable fan bases.
Star Wars vs Marvel
Before we evaluate Mark Ruffalo’s remarks, it’s critical to consider why the actor could have made the claims he did.
Marvel is presently in the lead when it comes to new film and television releases after announcing a wide range of projects at SDCC this year, comfortably surpassing DC and, unsurprisingly, Star Wars.
Not unexpectedly, we say, as the Star Wars film series hasn’t seen a new premiere since the 2019 release of The Rise Of Skywalker. It also doesn’t help that, much to the dismay of fans, Star Wars has drastically reduced the number of new releases. In addition to this, a few much-awaited projects have also been indefinitely delayed.
Mark Ruffalo’s Statement
According to Mark Ruffalo, Marvel is well ahead of Star Wars in terms of similarities across subsequent films. Remember that Disney owns all rights to these two franchises.
Mark Ruffalo has claimed that “Marvel had done well” since they let “director or actor recreate pieces to their own style”.
Fans typically receive “the same version of Star Wars each time,” according to Mark Ruffalo.
“I understand that these things run their course and then something else comes along. But the thing Marvel has done well is that, inside the MCU, just as they do with comic books, they let a director or an actor sort of recreate each piece to their own style, their likeness. Marvel generally lets them bring that to the material.”
“If you watch a Star Wars, you’re pretty much going to get the same version of Star Wars each time,”
To some fans, this may be extremely upsetting, while to others, it may be their bitter truth. Let’s just hope there isn’t a fandom war on the horizon!
